Bonino scored a power-play goal on five shots Wednesday in a 3-2 win over the Ducks. He also won 15 of 26 faceoffs (57.7 percent).
Bonino won an offensive-zone faceoff in the second period and beat Ryan Miller with a wrist shot right from the dot, extending Minnesota's lead to 2-0. It was Bonino's first goal in a Wild uniform after he had been held without a point in each of his first three contests. The 32-year-old, acquired via trade from Nashville in the offseason, hasn't reached the 20-goal mark since 2013-14 with Anaheim, but he could be a useful waiver wire addition if he can continue to take advantage of his power-play time.
Bonino posted an assist and a plus-2 rating while skating in 18:18 of ice time in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over the Kings.
The 32-year-old collected his first point of the season Saturday, and first as a member of the Wild, after he was acquired from the Predators this offseason. Not only has Bonino shored up center ice in the early going on the defensive end, he's also added some offense, including averaging 3:13 of power-play ice time through the first two games. Look for Bonino to surge to at least a modest half-point per game this season if he continues to see opportunities in a top-six role and on the power play.

Bonino ended a four-game mini slump with the tally Monday. He's at 18 goals, 35 points, 100 shots and a plus-17 rating in 63 appearances. He's not likely to surge to match his career high of 49 points from 2013-14, but the 31-year-old center could still reach the 40-point threshold.

Bonino was having a very respectable season until about mid-December, with 22 points in his first 33 games, but he's gone stone cold since then. He's currently spending most of his time centering the Preds' third line between Craig Smith and Rocco Grimaldi, so he's not seeing a lot of opportunities to contribute offensively right now. If he's still occupying a spot on your fantasy roster, get him out of there immediately and find someone who will help you.
